When our intellectual leaders think like this, we are set up by God for a deception by devils pretending to be aliens from a benevolent civilization. MIchio Kaku says he attended a Presbyterian church as a child, but his parents were Buddhists. He has never quite figured out how the two positions can interact.
What he really says is that the mind of God is the music of strings vibrating in eleven dimensions of hyperspace. This is the god of Buddhism, which makes no moral demands and has no personal connection with man. Atheists have no problem with that god. Its existence is irrelevant.
